The March and
THE SUMMER ROADSHOW WITH PAUL MAIN
FROM STRUCTURAL LEARNING (UK)
"Advancing Metacognitive Classroom Practices"
In March 2023, Paul Main, founder of Structural Learning, Cambridge, UK, was the presenter at our Summer Roadshow. He shared his Universal Framework with us; this framework helps teachers understand the HOW of learning. One of the key themes of the Roadshow was making thinking explicit and visible. He emphasised the importance of oracy, and how so much learning is done through talking.
We would like to thank Kingsmead College, Merchiston Boys' Preparatory, and Springfield Convent for hosting this event.
